If you're planning on playing Star Wars Jedi: Survivor at launch this weekend, then you might want to start avoiding related gaming forums and social media. Going by numerous reports currently doing the rounds on Twitter, there are already copies of the game out there in the wild. Whether it's through broken street dates or a case of people simply receiving their physical copies early, we don't know — but the inevitable story spoilers are starting to appear online.
"I know a lot of people will be upset to see spoilers before they get to play, and for us it's REALLY disheartening to see as well," says senior writer Pete Stewart on Twitter. Hopefully the leaks don't get too bad over the coming days, but we'd advise caution all the same — especially when you're browsing sites like YouTube. Stick to those subscriptions!
Survivor isn't the first AAA game to leak ahead of its release date and it certainly won't be the last — but at least we're only a few days out from its launch on the 28th April.

Pure geeks, i just cant stand them, makes me feel embarassed sharing a hobby with these cretins.
Leaks are pointless to me after the Last of Us: Part II leaks. I stopped looking at them after that fiasco. The more of us that stop being interested in them, the less it should happen.
There's no need to steal information and leak it if no one cares.
The only leak I want to know is how it’s gonna review.
Ahh I finally found a decent benefit of having memory problems, I can enjoy spoilers
Horizon Burning Shores spoilers were really bad, even the people (rightly criticizing) the ones spoiling a particular moment were still spoiling it by association.
It's a Star Wars game, I think the spoilers aren't exactly out of the realm of one's imagination to figure out. Although I haven't played further than the tutorial in the first one, so I don't know the who, how and why.
@AdamNovice Kotaku had a massive spoiler for it as a front picture for an article.
@BeerIsAwesome Well the game deals with a bunch a characters whose fates are unknown, safe to say we would rather not have a big reveal or death spoilt for us by some c**t on social media or Youtube.
@AdamNovice yeah horizon was bad but I think it was a consequence of outlets just wanting to be able to share something, anything about the game. As Sony and guerilla basically did none of that aside from a weak trailer and some Twitter pics.
When you see a spoiler and you try to convince yourself that you didn’t see it. “I didn’t see it! I didn’t see it! La La La La La!”
I feel like spoilers are so easily avoidable though unless a mainstream outlet genuinely doesn't give a heads up in an article. In terms of content creator spoilers, they literally put what it is going to show in the title because that's the click bait nature of trying to get views.
Darth Vader is Luke's Father.
Spoilers are one of the worst atrocities you can commit on this earth 😩
@WallyWest I don't disagree with the last part. And it wasn't in any way an attempt to dismiss the experience for those who are emotionally invested. I'm simply just saying the logic of the universe means it happens a certain way.
Well I've already had two games spoiled for me this year (Hogwarts and Horizon Burning Shores). Hopefully I can navigate the Twitter and comment section minefield more effectively this time around.
@NEStalgia NOOOO!!!! That's not true that's impossible.
@BeerIsAwesome I know your pain, I quit after hitting the roadblock of letting the alien fall.
Oh man, can’t believe Cere Junda had BD-1’s baby.
Appreciate the heads-up. I will be careful!
it just ain’t rock and roll
@WallyWest Didn't know that, knew there was a reason I didn't like Kotaku in the first place.
I am looking forward playing this one. The first one was awesome. Leakers can go suck the big one.
@Smiffy01 Calling other gamers geeks, is like calling other anime watchers weebs.
To all outsiders, you'll are the same.
Honestly, it doesn't matter if we go by the previous game. The story was thin and pointless. It's mostly the jedi gameplay and exploration of SW worlds that matter in this game.
I hope all that waiting in lifts and crawling through holes has gone, to hide loading times ,its really annoying
@Ernimus_Prime im just finishing off the first one as I never completed it,its ok im hoping the second solves the first ones problems,the hidden loading screens,ie those long lift rides and those crawling through holes ugh,also the map is very confusing, it also has some really bad textures.

@Loamy I agree ,they should come with jail time 😂 people who say oooh as well when you reach a certain section, or an episode of a TV series,you know something is coming ,I hate those guys ha ha
@KundaliniRising333 you could be on a reddit page regarding hamster care,and some d***head will tell you a spoiler for ragnarok though 😂
@tallythwack figgy spoilers!
There's light sabres in it.
The concern about story leaks is always kind of amusing to me. I don't buy anything day 1, so every game I play has 100% leaked before I get to it, and it has never impacted my enjoyment.
@NEStalgia fake, don't believe it, prove it troll.
@TeapotBuddha And Han shot first!
Thanks for the warning! I'll be sure to avoid YouTube's home page as much as I can.
Though there's not much I can do about the random recommended videos that always show up as a list on the right.
